The beauty of New Zealand's rural landscape is often overshadowed by its grander and more famous wilderness scenery. Yet, as rural people have always known, no one travelling through New Zealand can fail to notice how attractive and appealing so much of our farmed countryside actually is. Farm Country is a tribute to our rural landscape from New Zealand's leading panoramic photographer, Andris Apse.
Andris Apse was born in Latvia in 1943 and emigrated to New Zealand at the age of six. He is a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photographers and has been the recipient of many New Zealand and international awards. Several of Andris Apse's books are bestsellers, including New Zealand Landscapes, New Zealand Horizons and Light & Landscape.
